This and the rest of the pages in this series are about ‘weird’ atmospheric atmospheres with examples of what I and others I know have experienced of ‘weird’ events and ‘encounters’ while in these conditions.
I’ve noticed that on some days the general atmosphere as in the actual ‘atmospheric’ conditions are presented as being very still, silent, almost surreal and at times very ‘spooky’. On virtually all such days the sky is either very overcast (can even look ‘foreboding’), it’s drizzly or it’s misty or foggy to varying degrees. Visibility can be very good to not good at all on these days.
On such days, if there is even a slight ‘blustery’ breeze this often ‘kills’ the ambiance and spookiness.
In thinking about this then I think it’s very possible that if you’re in any wind at all, even a slight breeze then all the sensory engagement that we are subjected to due to the breeze or wind will overload our senses in a general sense and so make it much more difficult in the breeze ‘static’ for us to be able to deeply perceptually engage with the environment around us.
I noticed this recently because in looking out of the window it looked like one of these days BUT the moment I stepped outside it was immediately obvious it wasn’t and this was because there was a slight but noticeable blustery breeze.
Why are some days Spooky with a Surreal Silent Atmosphere?
During these atmospheres I personally feel as if my senses are stretching to try and become aware of anything within them that is; ‘going on’ however, paradoxically while I am under the ‘impression’ that I am personally more sensitive in these particular conditions I actually feel as if my awareness and sensitivity are reduced and are not actually functioning as well as they do even under ‘normal’ conditions of use.
You could say that these specific conditions make me ‘feel’ as if my own senses are blanketed or dulled while paradoxically at the same time these particular ‘conditions’ (for me) quite often engender the feeling that ‘something’ is about to happen or could happen or is actually happening, but is being kept hidden.
The other odd thing that I’ve noticed about these atmospheric ‘atmospheres’ is that people in them often become quiet, don’t talk, stop talking or start talking quietly, in general people make less noise, while ‘noises’ in general seem to be blanketed or suppressed. It’s almost as if people go round on tip toe trying to be quiet.
Are Spooky Surreal Silent Atmosphere Days DELIBERATELY Hiding Spooky Things?
Yet another, other thing I’ve noticed about these specific atmospheric ‘atmospheres’ is that ‘IF’ something ‘weird’ does happen while you are in them then it seems difficult to talk about them either while they are happening as well as afterwards. It’s almost as if the suppressing ‘blanketing’ carries over in some psychological way that makes it difficult to talk about weird ‘incidents’ that happened during these.
It’s also interesting in that as I’ve been trying to write the above then I’ve been becoming aware that it’s actually very difficult to write about these ‘atmosphere’ experiences in any detail and perhaps specifically in the terms I’m trying to frame them in. At the point I am writing this line for example I’ve only written 4 short paragraphs and I’ve had to slowly edit, expand and re-write these probably about 30 times so far. This was also while feeling that a lot of what I’ve already written is still ‘not right’ and that I’m missing a lot that I’ve not quite thought of yet.
As you are reading the following pages, try and think of any of your own experiences that included any of these types of ‘atmospheres’ and particularly of anything weird you experienced while these types of atmospheres were presenting themselves.
